The CPS has reported on the results of the check of fluids, windshield washing fluid, confiscation and fines.

The Federal service for supervision of consumer rights protection and human welfare (Rospotrebnadzor) continues to seek and to withdraw from sale “nezamerzayki” with methyl alcohol. The Ministry recalled that every year the country registered about 1 200 acute poisoning with methanol. His prolonged exposure can cause dizziness, pain in the heart and liver, blurred vision, etc.

To create harmless fluids, windshield washing fluids for the vehicles now using isopropyl alcohol. In Rospotrebnadzor recalled that he had an unpleasant and pungent smell reminiscent of acetone, and its pretty hard to kill even concentrated perfumes. But the alcohol is not toxic to humans.

By the end of 2018 and start of 2019, the Agency confiscated about 700 thousand liters unsafe “nezamerzayki” with methanol. It should be noted that this figure exceeds the result recorded in the previous period, because after 2017 the CPS confiscated about 80 thousand litres of dangerous fluids, windshield washing fluids. Maybe it’s not that Russia has sharply increased the turnover is harmful to human health products, and the fact that the Agency probably spent more checks.

For the last year and beginning of this was checked more than 8 thousand organizations that sell “antifreeze”, and more than 60 companies in the country who are engaged in its production. In the end, the total amount of fines amounted to about 18 million rubles. For comparison, the amount of the fines imposed on the results of inspections winter “stekloomyvateli” in 2017, was equal to 12.6 million.

At the beginning of 2019 Kolesa.ru reported that the inflated prices of “antifreeze” did not go unnoticed. At too high a cost fluids, windshield washing fluid in online stores and at gas stations drew the attention of the Deputy of legislative Assembly of Leningrad region Vladimir Petrov. To check the price tags, he appealed directly to the head of FAS Igor Artemyev.

The Deputy explained that in December and January, the price tag is a canister washer fluid on a large network of filling stations in Moscow and St. Petersburg range from 350 to 500 rubles. While the actual cost of “nezamerzayki” is about 50-60 rubles, he said. Vladimir Petrov also says that in winter, rose snow shovels and brushes for cleansing cars.

Note, in most regions of the Russian Federation in the cold season most drivers need winter tyres. Now, however, there are those who are officially freed from having to set.

Quick release bonnet and rear from talking about sports the purpose of the prototype. Upon closer inspection, also found the skeleton in the cabin and racing seats.

Unusual Dacia Duster first generation (and even previous) recently spotted by the photographers near the Arctic circle. The engineers of Renault Sport Department has tested this unit on one of the frozen lakes. The car is noteworthy in many respects. First, it is fully electric. Secondly, racing and three-door (or rather two, because the back opens with no wing, and a body section).

On the front of the prototype mounted Brembo brake calipers, rear — Renault Alpine.

Explanation the prototype, there are several. First: experts Dacia and Renault Duster use this as a prototype for testing some solutions racing all-wheel drive electric vehicle. This brings to mind the French championship races on ice Andros Trophy, which was made by Dacia. Interestingly, it even was used adapted ice track compact MPV Lodgy. However, the next racing partner apparatus can be battery-operated Duster.

In the championship, the Andros Trophy for several years there is an electric class. It uses the same rear-wheel drive 122-horsepower electric company Exagon engineering (pictured). In 2020 there should appear in its own category electric poluprovodnikov, reminds the edition Autoevolution.

It is not known yet what form the electric apparatus will be presented. But at least for the Duster wouldn’t be the first insight into the Motorsport, including a thorough processing of the entire structure. Suffice it to recall the mid-engined 850-horsepower rally car Duster No Limit with barbastelle from the Nissan GT-R, created several years ago for pikes Peak.

Indirectly, the prototype says about another. Brand Dacia, with the assistance of its partners, the group gains experience with electric drive. So, in the future can to please buyers of any serial electric vehicles. On this scenario, that is, the conversion of electric vehicles from expensive products in bulk and more affordable, and talk to other brands of the Alliance Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi. And even show you an example of conceptsthat hold the course. So in a perspective of road Duster on batteries may not be such a fantasy.

The pictures in the news car shows in the snow, but she was taken out and on the ice. The tires were studded.

There is an alternative explanation for the experiment. In the body of the Duster can hide units future electric SUV brand Alpine. Then we are not talking about budget machines, and on their direct opposites — prestigious models on batteries. In this case, Duster paves the way rival such SUVs as the Mercedes-Benz EQC, I Jaguar-Pace and Audi e-tron.
